This, late breaking, from the Washington Post:
In his meeting with Lavrov, Trump seemed to be boasting about his inside knowledge of the looming threat. “I get great intel. I have people brief me on great intel every day,” the president said, according to an official with knowledge of the exchange.
Trump went on to discuss aspects of the threat that the United States learned only through the espionage capabilities of a key partner
When those of you who voted for Trump, to get an Executive - I expect you were thinking of the disciplined types who run a tight ship and have deep experience with a relatively transparent company. That indeed might have been a great experiment
If you voted for Trump because he did not give a rat's ass, and said it like it is: I hope you, your healthcare, your kids all land on your feet - because what is happening now is dangerous as all get out.
We're all in the same boat now - and we need to row in SOME direction. Trump's way, chaos.
Disclaimer: I do have an axe to grind, re Trump's highhanded, dangerous and obsolete disregard for the fate of our Natural World.
